The Usual Place Academy Street Dumfries DG1 1BZ
Meet Moira Bell, cleaner, single mother and the hardest woman in Falkirk. Whether defending her wee dog Pepe from the local rottweiler, attempting to seduce a teacher, or belting out Diana Ross for the Scotia karaoke night, Moira is hilarious, hypnotic, frightening and heart-warming company.
Based on the stories and characters Alan encountered growing up in the Hallglen area of Falkirk, where The Moira Monologues first premiered, Moira and her pals have left audiences all over the country weak with laughter.

“A funny, feisty, fiery 60 minutes that’s utterly convincing.” ★★★★ TV Bomb
